    Bond was set at $350,000 Sunday for a convicted felon who chose the wrong victim on Chicago's Southwest Side this weekend: an ultimate fighter and martial arts expert.

    The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Anthony Miranda approached a parked vehicle near 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue Friday night and asked the driver for a lighter before pointing a handgun at the man and demanding money. After the driver handed over some cash, Miranda reportedly ordered him out of the car -- which was apparently a mistake.

    Chicago Police Officer John Mirabelli told the Sun-Times what happened next:

    At some point, Miranda’s attention was diverted and the victim was able to grab control of the gun and the two wrestled.

    During the fight, Miranda accidentally discharged his gun, shooting himself in the ankle, Mirabelli said.

    The victim was then able to pin down Miranda until police arrived, Fox Chicago reports. He told officers he was a martial arts expert and ultimate fighting champion. Miranda was taken to Holy Cross Hospital with a "face full of lacerations," two black eyes and a gunshot wound.

    Miranda, 24, was charged with armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. He was ordered held on $350,000 bond Sunday, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

    Oh I'm sure that the gunshot wound will prove fatal once he get inside the big house. Not going to be able to scramble out to the way of trouble. It may just take a really long time to finally expire.[own2]

    son-in-law and his best friend were attacked inside a store last night
    they happen to be regulars and are friends with security
    and the entire thing was caught on security cams
    anyway, the 2 attackers found themselves pinned to the floor
    before security arrived, with their ffaces pretty beaten in
    cops called son-in-law today to tell him they wouldnt have to appear
    for a hearing, the security guard caught it all on tape and saved it
    and gave it to the cops when they picked up the attackers
    occasionally, things do work out the right way :)
    what we really do need tho is some real "survival of the fittest"
    to weed out these people early
